Wood Burner Installer – Case Study 4

Clients: Mr and Mrs Congailis – East Grinstead
Installer: Hal Kaye
Assisted by: Ben Alliston
Date: July 2012
Stove:  8kw “The Bexworth” Supplied by  Swept Away
Flue Pipe: 250mm Vitreous Enamel with inspection door and “316 grade” 6″ flexible flue liner. 5-6in increasing adaptor.
Cowl: 6″ mini suspended Cowl.

This installation  was carried out over two days in July 2012.

Day 1

Very dusty fit this one. Here I am after removing the existing very old and very inefficient inset stove and making the opening both larger and deeper to accomodate a free standing multi fuel wood burner which Swept Away supplied.


In the picture below you can now see where we have made good the space, put in a new lintle and made ready for plastering.
The hearth has also been laid using a solid black granite tiles.

Day 2

Below the finished plaster work, expertly done by Wade, our plastering contractor, friend and very much an integral part of the Swept Away team.


After we dropped a 316 grade flexible flue liner down the chimney we fitted a new register plate. Then we connected up the vitreous enamelled flue pipe to the liner and subsequently to the stove. All joins are sealed with fire cement and around the register plate with 300 degree heat resistant silicone. To comply with HETAS and Building reulations a CO2 alarm and data plate also fitted.
